Ithaca Awards Bibby Offshore Athena Development Contract

Ithaca awarded Bibby Offshore contracts for the installation of subsea equipment and the installation of the FPSO mooring system for the Athena development.

Work for the subsea installation entails installing subsea manifolds, flowlines, power cables and umbilicals between the subsea wellheads and the floating production, storage and offloading vessel, BW Athena. This work includes both the 1.2 mile (2 kilometer) seabed sections, which will be trenched, and the dynamic riser sections leading to the buoy connecting the system to the FPSO.

For the mooring system contract, Bibby Offshore will install an APL STP buoy, nine suction piles, and associated anchor lines.

The Athena field is situated on Block 14/18b in the Outer Moray Firth area in the UK sector of the North Sea in 440 feet (134 meters) of water. Ithaca Energy serves as the operator of the field, holding a 22.5% interest; Dyas UK Ltd. holds 47.5%; EWE holds 20%; and Zeus holds the remaining 10% interest.
